The print was made in 1896 under the direction of the British physicist, Sir Arthur Schuster (1851-1934). Schuster was then a professor at Owen's College (now part of the University of Manchester). He was one of the first to receive the offprint of an article entitled "_ber eine neue Art von Strahlen", along with a set of prints from W.K. Röntgen (1845-1923), the German physicist who discovered x-rays in 1895. Sir Arthur's daughter Dr. Nora H. Schuster presented the prints to the Wellcome Institute Library in 1962
